Ben was extremely gracious and willing to do whatever he could to accommodate us! I can't thank you enough, Ben! You've been a huge blessing to us!
Vehicles are one of our most valuable possessions. Personal transportation is so valuable, in fact, that the United States has the second largest automobile market in the world. While you likely put your vehicle to use daily, you may need to keep your motorized companion somewhere secure for extended periods of time in your absence. Or just find a place to park in the city where you work!
Keeping your car safe from thieves, weather, dust, and pests is very important, but not everybody has that kind of storage space available. That’s where Neighbor comes in. All you have to do is enter your zip code and you’ll be able to browse a list of car storage spaces available near you. Give it a try for your boat, truck, or trailer as well. Read on for tips and advice about storing your car.
Car storage is a safe designated location to keep your car while you aren’t using it. Types of storage can range from a simple parking space to a fully equipped indoor storage garage. Depending on your situation and how much money you are willing to spend, there are several storage types and amenities to consider. The way you choose to store your car can have a major impact on the vehicle’s lifespan and resale value, so it’s important to make an informed decision when selecting a storage unit.
Neighbor makes it easy to find and book a storage space for your car near you. Unlike traditional self storage facilities, Neighbor connects people in need of storage space with other people who have extra room. Just type your location into the search bar and you’ll see a list of storage units in your area.
You can compare price, size, amenities, and location to find your ideal space. After you’ve selected your storage space, you can make a reservation request and get in touch with the host. Neighbor handles all the payments and provides a secure messaging platform for you to use.
Car storage comes in a variety of sizes to suit a wide range of vehicles. Consider the size of your car along with any accessories you plan to store with your vehicle before booking your space. Below is a size guide to common storage lengths and widths and the types of vehicles best fit for each space.
10x10 storage spaces are perfect for motorcycles and very small cars. Most cars will be too large to fit in this small space, and there will be minimal room for accessory storage. Types of cars best suited for this space: Motorcycles, mini electric cars, micro-cars.
Cars that fit in this area: Honda Fit, MINI Cooper, Kia Forte, Mazda Mazda3, Volkswagen GTI, Hyundai Veloster, Honda Civic, Hyundai Accent, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Prius, Kia Rio, Chevrolet Sonic, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Bolt, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla, Volkswagen Golf, Hyundai Ioniq, Ford Fiesta, Subaru Impreza, Subaru WRX, Volkswagen Jetta, Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Spark, Volkswagen Beetle, Nissan Sentra, Nissan Versa, Fiat 500, Mitsubishi Mirage, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, Mazda 6, Kia Optima, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion, Chevy Malibu, Buick Regal, Subaru Legacy, Volkswagen Passat, Kia Soul, Subaru Crosstrek, Hyundai Kona.
A 10x20 storage space is half the size of a regular 2-car garage and will hold most cars. You will only need to upgrade to a larger length if you have an extraordinarily long vehicle or plan to store large items along with your car. Types of cars best suited for this space: Sedans, hatchbacks, crossovers, minivans, SUVs, pickup trucks, or small boat.

Only extremely large or specialty vehicles will require a 10x30. This size of storage space is ideal for storing accessories in addition to a large vehicle. Types of cars best suited for this space: Large trucks, large vans.
If you plan to store furniture and appliances along with your large vehicle, or more than one vehicle, look into getting a 10x30+ storage space. This will leave you plenty of space to park two cars and store other large items. Types of cars best suited for this space: Multiple cars, extra large trucks, specialty vans, or a boat. Take advantage of the extra length.
Depending on your car and your situation, there are a number of features you should look for in a storage space. Here is a brief guide to common vehicle storage amenities you can choose from.
Most vehicle storage allows 24/7 access, meaning you can come and go as you please. Several storage spaces also have an onsite manager or host for added security and convenience. Be sure to find a storage unit that offers drive-up access as well.
Climate control is important if you live in an area with extreme temperatures, precipitation, or humidity. This option is only available for indoor vehicle storage spaces.
The price of car storage depends on the size of your vehicle, but typically the cheapest way to store a car is to use outdoor storage. Through Neighbor, you can find a variety of car storage options including outdoor and indoor and covered and uncovered spaces for less than $65 a month.
Some enclosed storage units also include electrical outlets for added convenience. Plan on dishing out more money every month if you choose a space with this extra perk.
Indoor car storage units mean your vehicle will be safely locked away and covered in a garage-type space. These spaces provide the best protection from the elements. Storing your car inside a typical unit will protect it from sun, rain, dirt and dust, and other extreme temperatures and edge cases. You can even sometimes rent out a climate-controlled storage unit for your car.
If you need long-term storage for your car then the safest option is to rent out an indoor storage unit. An additional benefit is that you are getting an entire storage unit rather than just a parking space. So you can use it to store and cover all your other belongings alongside your car. You will need a drive-up access vehicle storage unit though to make this work.
These units, although ideal, they are more expensive than renting an outdoor parking space for your car, even covered spaces. Typically you can fit your car inside a 10x20 storage unit or within a 10x30 unit.
Outdoor car storage is an inexpensive way to store your vehicle, but your car will be more exposed to the elements than with enclosed storage. This type of space is usually a driveway or other paved area where you can park your car. Some outdoor storage spaces are covered or exist in carports for additional protection. Many of these spaces are drive-up ready and are available for moving at any time.
This type of vehicle storage is typically the least expensive and is usually just a parking spot on the facility premises. Or if you are renting with Neighbor then this is an RV pad on the side of someone's house or a parking spot within their garage. Storage facilities don't care very much about these spaces so they are just a paved area on the outskirt of the facility grounds so they aren't under a roof or in a building.
Although these are the cheapest vehicle storage units around they are also the ones that can cause the most damage to your vehicle because your car is subject to the weather and other elements. See our guide below about how to protect your car while in storage.
Open lot car storage is a field or other open area where you can park your car. This type of storage won’t offer your vehicle any more protection from the elements than parking it in your backyard, but you can count on the extra security. Moving your car in and out is easy as there is frequently drive-up access.
Airports offer various types of storage lots to accommodate travelers. You can choose from daily, short-term, long-term, or valet parking to store your vehicle while you travel. In addition to the airport’s car storage options, private storage lots near the airport called off-airport lots can be used for long-term car storage.
One of the most important features is security. All storage spaces are equipped with basic protection like fences and locks, while some offer access codes, security cameras, and 24/7 surveillance.
